Drivers can also look forward to a plug-in hybrid model that will be launching in the spring. Each model comes with standard front-wheel drive, aside from the Titanium, which is the only nonhybrid in the pack that is standard all-wheel-drive. However, all other trim levels can be upgraded to all-wheel-drive to make it much easier to navigate Canadian winter roads.
One of the greatest features for those who like to pack their SUV full of people, groceries, tools, and more--the new Ford Escape is a bit longer, wider, and lower than previous models. All this, with the addition of a lower beltline, made it possible for Ford designers to create larger windows and provide drivers with enhanced outward visibility.
The 2020 model is also significantly lighter than previous designs, with a tough and durable steel frame that makes it easy for the new Escape to handle a variety of different roadways with ease.
The base Escape model also features a turbocharged 1.5-litre inline 3-cylinder engine, capable of producing 181 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. This powerful combination provides plenty of "get up and go" while making it possible to maintain a smooth and relatively quick ride. The compelling upgrade option, a turbocharged 2.0-litre inline 4-cylinder engine is only available on the all-wheel-drive SEL and Titanium trim, delivering 250 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque--promising to turn the relatively demure SUV into more of a hot rod among others in its class.
Both of the gas engines available on the new Ford escape are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. And while Ford has stepped up the overall look and style points available with their new Escape, they have made great strides in the 2020 model with Ford's innovative technologies such as available SYNC 3, Ford Co-Pilot360, FordPass Connect, and Heads-Up Display options.
The overall EPA fuel economy numbers for the new Escape jumped dramatically from 1.28 Kilometers per Liter to 1.7 Kilometers per Liter. However, the 1.5-liter SE at 11.05 KM/L and the 2.0-liter Titanium at 9.35 KM/L leave plenty of room for improvement moving forward.
The overall EPA fuel economy numbers for the new Escape jumped dramatically from 1.28 Kilometers per Liter to 1.7 Kilometers per Liter. With the Hybrid hoping to be launched sometime in Spring 2020 this will vastly improve what are already great fuel economy numbers on the 2020 Ford Escape.
